There are three different types of WiZ smart lights: bulbs, lamps and projectors. Here's how to prep each one of them for setup:

To Prepare a Smart Bulb

  1. Make sure your lamp or light fixture is turned off and within 150 feet of your Wi-Fi router.
  2. Remove the existing bulb.
  3. Carefully install your new WiZ smart bulb.

  4. Turn your lamp or light fixture on.
  5. By default, a new WiZ smart light should be pulsing white or blue when it's turned on for the first time, meaning it is pairing mode.

    If the light is not in pairing mode, it needs to be turned off and back on three times in a row. If the light was already paired before, it needs to be turn off and back on five times in a row.

To Prepare a Smart Lamp or Projector

  1. Ensure the lamp or projector is within 150 feet of your Wi-Fi router.
  2. Plug the light into a power outlet.
